Trial Starts for Anti-Hunting Pilot Who Decapitated Fox Hunter With a Helicopter

Trevor Morse died instantly when the rear propeller "cleaved his head from top to bottom".

Anti-hunting protester Bryan Griffiths, a qualified pilot, had been watching the Warwickshire Hunt near Long Marston airfield on March 9 last year.
